April 21, 2013: Happy 38th anniversary to Blue Max CC, who celebrated this weekend by hosting the Central Plains LeatherSIR Leatherboy contest.
Founded in 1975, the club has a history of contributing to charitable causes, and was the first leather club in St. Louis to admit women.
Over the years, the club has called the Red Bull, FACES, Clementines, Outpost/St. Louis Eagle, and JJs Clubhouse home.
Blue Max CC has recently provided the Project with access to its historical archives and we will be scanning hundreds of items for future research.
The Project was happy to provided display boards to document the club's history for contest guests to view.
If your St. Louis area club or organization has a special event coming up, please let the Project know so we can possibly help you celebrate with a historical display.
April 18, 2003: Last week, the Project received a generous donation of materials from Ramona Boston. Ramona donated a very large trunk filled with lesbian-themed items including books and magazines, along with local Pride memorabilia. Do you have St. Louis-focused LGBT history treasures to donate? Let us know. Thanks again to Ramona for her support.
